My original callsign was KJ6CWP. I attained the vanity callsign of K6AAX soon after and operated several contests from VY2ZM and as VP2MXA from Montserrat Island. In late 2012, I changed my callsign to KK6ZM in honor of my father, K1ZM and my uncle, K3ZM. The contest within a low band contest is to work all three of us or "Work ALL ZMs". I assure you that I am the most challenging to work. That should make me the most fun, right?
My current interests are contesting, particularly SSB, and working low band DX on 75m and 160m. My original interest in amateur radio stemmed from collecting SWL confirmations from AM radio stations across North America. I still enjoy doing that to this day.
Bottom line: If the station is weak and sounds far away, I want to work them. It is the challenge of the hunt that excites me and keeps me engaged in this great hobby.
